The Poison Tree by Erin Kelly

In The Poison Tree, Karen Clarke is a student at a London college. She's successful in her studies, but challenged by the college's social life. When she meets Biba, an enchanting free spirit who is everything Karen is not, Karen is captivated. Karen follows Biba to the family mansion, where she meets and falls for Biba's brother, Rex. The three of them spend their days wallowing in sex, drink, and drugs. Biba's dark side emerges, family secrets and dynamics bubble to the surface, and their hedonistic days end in murder. Erin Kelly's debut novel has received mostly positive reviews with BookPage saying, "Perfectly paced, it starts with a bang and teems with twists that will keep you guessing right up until its thrilling and shocking conclusion. Kelly masterfully ratchets up the suspense, constantly causing readers to reappraise what is true as well as which dark and dirty secret will be unearthed next, all while nimbly maneuvering back and forth in time to keep tensions running high."
